Mothers Against the Madness in Germany was the organization established by Diana McGraw in late 1945. It formally organized protests against the continued American occupation of Germany, and gained the ear of several political figures, mostly Republicans and conservative Democrats. After years of rallies, speeches, and protests, the organization had its way: in 1948, the United States began withdrawing troops from Germany.
McGraw, after an incident with a Jewish-American soldier, realized that the withdrawal from Germany did not satisfy Jews, who had suffered terribly at the hands of the Nazis. She was comforted by the fact that "regular Americans" were happy.
